Volatility Forecasting in Financial Markets – Hedge Fund Industry Survey
Попросили меня направить представителям индустрии хеджфондов это письмо, чтобы они поучаствовали в опросе. В свое время им что-то тоже писал, много времени это не занимает.
Думаю, на ресурсе кто-то захочет или посчитает нужным ответить на пару вопросов.
